The Human Ecodynamics Research Center (HERC) at the Graduate Center, CUNY works to coordinate efforts in sustainability science and education, and to connect our efforts with national and international initiatives in sustainability science and education.

HERC focuses on the past and present global interactions of humans and the natural world, using fields of inquiry and methods of investigation from anthropology, archaeology, sociology, geosciences, climatology, biological sciences, art, history, and political science. HERC staff and affiliated scholars work to connect cutting edge sustainability science and long term human ecodynamics research to education for sustainability through active field projects, cross-disciplinary workshops and conferences, multi-institutional collaborations, and innovative cyberinfrastructure.
